Techstars Kansas City Accelerator Announced 2018 Class

Jul 16, 2018

Techstars Kansas City is proud to welcome Techstars Class 137! This year’s class hails from three countries and includes six companies from the midwest. Although our companies come from many industries, they share in common that they are all solving problems to make the world as we know it more efficient and transparent. From making our water safer, our food safer, to solving the problem of payday loans right where they began — in Kansas City. These ten companies will make a big impact on our city and our economy.

Techstars is the Worldwide Network that helps entrepreneurs succeed, and strong partners and incredible mentors help make this happen. We’re grateful for their support as well as the support from the broader global network.

We kick things off this week, and will conclude with an exciting Demo Day and conference in partnership with TechWeek October 11th.

We hope to see you there!
